    I'm Gonna Keep Working on Maggie's Farm. ;)
    Hey guys,  I've been working on this blog post all day long and I've found that I really only have one thing to say. I want to paint colorful animals. I want to paint colorful animals! I don't care that the trees are bare and the leaves are brown, there is always time for color in life. Some people may find this surprising to learn about me, but I really enjoy bright colors. Though, my wardrobe may tell a different story (yes it's black...almost entirely black...). I adore pop art and colorful

    Building a new business is so humbling.
    It's so funny how we get so attached to a tiny number that only exists on the interwebs. When I first started my new business, the low amount of "likes" and "views" was admittedly disturbing, to begin with. Then I remembered that I was just started and I shouldn't expect the same amount of admiration I was used to receiving from my other social media platforms.  I know this is kind of a strange thing to blog about, but I feel it's work chatting about some. It can be difficult to not compare the

    Its A Live... Stream.
    I am live! Live streaming that is.

I work in retail part time and get to see a lot of beautiful floral patterns.  I guess I never really appreciated textiles until I started getting serious about my artwork.  This sketchbook spread isn't the greatest when it

    I'll Have One of Each, Please.
    I finally got to rest some today.  My days since the beginning of October have been filled with moving to our new home, getting a new job, quitting an old job, animal rescuing, unpacking allllllllllllot of boxes.  My living room is still currently filled with full and halfway unpacked boxes.  I can't be bothered to fool with them at all today though because I decided that I need an actual day off. I finally got to do my most favorite activity of all which is laying around like the laziest
  5. My art is going through it's experimental collegiate phase.

    My art is going through it's experimental collegiate phase.
    My art has decided to move past things that are just creepy cute and enter the mainstream. Although this sounds quite horrifying to some, I think it may be a good thing for the both of us.  As I am vehemently pursuing a career as an illustrator (which is code for 'manically producing artwork and spewing it onto all social media platforms') I've found it is important to be well rounded. So I've been trying new things.  The weirdest part is that the initial sense of betrayal I thought I would feel
